A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

As educators, we want to provide students with opportunities to learn and grow. We want our students to share and collaborate with one another and along the way. Students need to build important skills that will be useful throughout their lives. Google Classroom, Google Apps and Tools can create authentic learning opportunities that allow students to collaborate, present and share ideas.

As an experienced elementary school teacher, I understand the time constraints and pressures of meeting the diverse needs of classroom students. I have had the opportunity to experience firsthand how Google Classroom can be used to engage, differentiate and reach reluctant learners.

Throughout our day together, I will share the best practices for using Google Classroom, Apps and Tools to give students a voice, communicate with parents and support struggling learners.

I invite you to join me for a day of exploration and discussion on how to more effectively utilize Google Classroom to enhance your instructional program. Whether you use Google Tools or you are new to using Google products, you will leave with a greatly expanded repertoire of practical strategies and timesaving tips you'll be able to use immediately.

I look forward to meeting you at the seminar!
